This is a beautiful little inn along the main street in Nassau. A short walk from the fish fry. The owner takes care of you and is cheerful and accommodating. Overall a pleasant experience and a cheap place to stay by Nassau standards. Catch the jittneys out front to explore the city for $1.25

It was my first time in Nassau, I wanted to have a cheap travel thinking in my dives only. I decided to book the hotel with no more than $100 night and then I found "it". Never been in places like that. When you see the pictures here it is not so terrible, but when you arrive you figure out... More

Very basic but ok. Stayed for one night before traveling home from work. Staff were friendly and gave us a good deal as there was 4 of us. By no means a palace! Spent more time in local bars than at the inn but I would go back. Cheep cheerful short stay motel

This place is not for everyone. It’s old and run down and the cleanliness is lacking, but it’s inexpensive and within walking distance of down town. I paid $80 for my one night stay. The proprietors Ann and Lloyd, are very sweet. Ann replied to my emails promptly and Lloyd was very pleasant and helpful. It cost $28 for a... More

This Inn is old but serviceable. The room had 2 beds; the single one's springs were gone and there were hairs on the sheets, the double bed was firm and seemed to be clean. Over all it looks shabby and dirty and I was glad I stayed there for 1 night only and would not go back there.

Usually spend time in Nassau with spouse's relatives and this time not possible. Looked for a reasonable, clean, convenient place and this was the cheapest overall. Couldn't tell much from the internet photos, so took a chance. Turned out to be a very good place for the amount of money. The room was shabby chic, and fairly clean. The kitchenette... More

I stayed with Ann and Lloyd Gay at the Arawak Inn in 2000 and am hoping to return again next year after some time spent in Europe, however I miss the beautiful colours of Caribbean Blue and the hospitality and sheer joie-de-vivre of the Bahamian people. We experienced real Bahamian life and I will never forget the welcome we received... More

My husband and I were in Nassau for two days on a bureaucratic mission. Our preferred form of accommodation is definitely not the big resort type and so we went for the low-budget Arawak Inn, located on the edge of downtown. It's actually only a 5-minute drive from the centre of town. The inn has fewer than 10 rooms. Our... More

As an American who travels frequently I am used to the more crisp and clean appearance of at hotel 6 or even a Hilton. The Arawak Inn is not that and that's one of the reasons I GO BACK...three times in fact. Yes the water has a sulfur smell whatever its and island and the road is just feet from... More

I made reservations here about 6 weeks before arrival and then re-confirmed then 2 weeks before arrival. We were staying 2 days before and 1 day after our cruise on the Liberty Clipper (which is AMAZING!). When we arrived the 1st night, we were told that they were full and that we did not have a reservation. The man then... More
